GPS on the 3G iPhone

There are rumors and only rumors about the 3G iPhone that is almost definitely coming within the next two months, but they if most of the rumors are true the 3G iPhone will be amazing.

The first question is whether or not the 3G iPhone is going to be a complete rework or simply a mildly updated version of the best phone ever made. As with any technology though, there is really not much since in coming out with a mildly updated device a year after the original launch. There has been such growth in the industry that if the iPhone isn’t completely revamped t will be light years behind the other competitors as far as hardware is concerned.

The feature of most concern to me today is the inclusion of GPS on the 3G iPhone. Without the GPS, the iPhone will quickly be moving behind the pack with all of the other Blackberrys and PDA smartphones coming with it standard. With that in mind it would be hard to believe that Apple would let the others get ahead. They are always on the leading edge of technology and design so it only makes sense to include the GPS.

We will have to wait until June 9th most likely to know for sure what will be on the new 3G iPhone, but I am sure Apple will have plenty of exciting news for everyone on that day.
